You’ve heard Goldie refer to Alice as the Blue Boyscout (among other things). I’ve sketched Alice as just that for two reasons:
1.) I am swamped with Cub Scouts and life and have to take about a week long hiatus so there will be no art 2/27/20.
2.) Yep, I know that Boy Scouts/BSA has filed a Chapter 11. I know why, too. I came into Scouts later in life because I’m a girl. But now I am a mom and want my kids to enjoy Scouts so I had them join. I know that safety is “Number One” because we make it so (Yes, random Star Trek pun!) and I believe in what the organization has always tried to do. It is full of fun, learning, opportunity, character-growth, and promotes a safe environment for any and all youth. Their Youth Protection Training is mandatory for all adult leaders and is a free video online at my.scouting.org with points on barriers of abuse, how to keep scouts safe and fun, and more. Over the last 1.5 years, I have immersed myself in Scouting and support the organization. The Chapter 11 filing will not affect us much on a District or Pack/Troop level but we still see it in the news and know people have questions, concerns, and biases. Ask away. Ask any Scout leader at any level, and know that any worth their salt will answer readily and truthfully. May we all follow the Cub Scout Motto: Do Your Best!
Sorry for the delay but I wanted to show that I am working on the Graphic Novelization of SHARDS while providing you current strips and SHARD Dust:) This is Pg. 21, Panel 3, where MISS MUFFET is still lurking in the shadows, waiting for DR. MUFFET to tell her she can come introduce herself to ALICE. It is a variation of the scene in the webcomic but the story itself has a lot of new content which I hope to show you bits and pieces of as things move along. HOPEFULLY things are moving along again on an agent/editor side! We’ll see:)
And, as far as the SHARD Dust strips, just know they are canon, and they are happening exactly when they appear in the flow of strips. David is still pinned by Daniel’s lion and now you know why Goldie didn’t sense him in the Library and why Miss Muffet is otherwise also occupied:)
Sorry for the lack of comic but I really wanted to let everyone know that Dave and I will be at SNAFU Con this weekend in Reno, NV at the Grand Sierra Resort! Come see us and celebrate 10 years of SNAFU Con! It is almost the 10th anniversary of SHARDS and Selkie as well!
Aaaaannnd… We’re close to being back! With planning for the upcoming SNAFU Con in mid November and Halloween right around the corner, October is shot. HOWEVER! Our brand new Chapter 4: Black & White full comic first page will be out November 7th with a new page every Thursday! See you then!
Sorry to continue with other art but it is still a bit crazy. I did start inking the comic strip so it should be done by the end of the week.
Here is one of the products I hope to have available at the next SNAFU Con which is held here in Reno, NV. I have applied to the Artist Alley and hope to get in this year! If so, it will be myself and Dave from Selkie Comic sharing a table!
